Theresa May tells Trump not to 'speculate' on London terror attack

British Prime Minister Theresa May criticized President Trump's response to a terrorist attack at a London Underground station, saying he shouldn't speculate on the investigation.

"I never think it is helpful for anyone to speculate in what is an ongoing investigation," May told reporters in London. 

"As I've just said police and security services are working to discover the full circumstances of this cowardly attack and to identify all those responsible."

A device exploded at London's Parsons Green train station on Friday, injuring commuters. British authorities said the incident is being investigated as a terror attack. 

Trump responded to the incident on Twitter, blaming it on terrorists and making the case for his travel ban on visitors from six Muslim-majority countries.

 

 

May's comments came after Trump said he would call May.  

This is not the first time Trump has rapidly issued tweets in the wake of a terror attack in the United Kingdom. 

Shortly after an attack in central London last June, in which a driver struck several people on London Bridge, the president took to Twitter. 

 

 

 

 

 

London Mayor Sadiq Khan criticized Trump for the tweets and called on the British government to rescind an invitation for the president to visit the country.
